New Scale Technologies (Victor, NY) has introduced its M3-F focus module for miniature OEM cameras used in handheld products; portable biometric sensors; targeting, surveillance and security systems; and medical diagnostic and imaging devices. At only 20 × 22 × 16 mm — about the same dimensions as a fixed lens holder — the M3-F focus module improves image quality over a wide range of focus distances without adding volume or significantly increasing power usage. All lens motion functions are fully integrated in the M3-F module including actuator, position sensor, guide mechanism, drive and control electronics and software. Modules provide millimeters of lens motion with 0.5 micrometer position resolution, better than 30 micrometer accuracy, and better than +/-1 degree angular alignment (static tip/tilt).
